Introduction Today, I am going to dive into the awesome world of sorting. It reminds me with entry level computer science courses and algorithm design. The goal of this article is to summarize popular sorting algorithms and put it in one place so that it is easy to remember and refer to. My intention is
Introduction Before we start, I recommend that you read this post first. It talks about concurrency in operating systems and clarifies the main difference between multitasking, multithreading, multiprogramming and multiprocessing. If you are done, let us proceed and define some relevant terms so that things are put into perspective. In this article, I am targeting
System Call In order to better understand the difference between different call types, let us set some context for discussion. We are referring here to modern operating system (OS) design concepts. So, what are the main goals of having an OS in the first place ? Well, the OS achieves two primary goals for users.
Introduction I started to get paranoid due to the rise of online security threats. Going offline is not a practical solution in the world of "Internet of things". The fact that the average individual is not often under attack must not be taken for granted. Not staying safe online should keep each one of us awake
Introduction I can easily assume that the majority of software engineers are not computer security experts, however; I think there should be no excuse for the average software engineer not to get familiar with basic concepts. For instance, if you were asked: "what is SSL?" I guess it is either you do not know the
Introduction A YouTube video can be either public (anyone can watch), private (only the owner can watch) or unlisted (anyone with a link can watch). I like the third option because I can share the links with whoever I want and at the same time my videos do not show up in search results. If
I assume you have a Mac computer and web.py is already installed. I also assume openssl is installed. Follow the steps below to enable SSL on your web server. openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024 openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt In your
If you want to view and decrypt SSL connections (https) sent from your mobile device or if you are getting the message "ssl proxying not enabled for this host: enable in proxy settings, ssl locations" then you came to the right place. Here is a tutorial on how to do that: Charles SSL certificate iPhone
It is nice to have a fast Android emulator for various reasons (ex. test automation) but it is notoriously known as slow to the extent that engineers abandon it. On the other hand, the iOS simulator is super fast. In this short article I am going to explain how to make it as good as
In this short article, I will explain how to create a test automation framework for iOS using Sikuli, iOS simulator and Python unit test. I assume prior knowledge about these technologies and only focus on the actual technical details so that you hit the ground running. Sikuli API is distributed as a Java JAR file.
